Heart-y greetings

It’s time to slow down

And listen to the music before the song is over.

Time to be a child again in spirit;

To give the best gifts:

Those of time and love.

May your holiday season be heartfelt and sweet!

— Only from the heart can you touch the sky.
Rumi

    I love your phrase “listen to the music before the song is over”. You have a beautiful way of reminding us to listen with our hearts.
